  • Napalm Sunday - Bradford Thomas - Liberty.me
    and an ass is looking to ride triumphantly into Paris and hand Iran a nuclear bomb Amir Hossein Motaghi an Iranian journalist who defected last week makes it clear that instead of negotiating a treaty to ensure the safety of the rest of the world our self styled messiah is a cheerleader for Iran The U S negotiating team are mainly there to speak on Iran s behalf with other members of the 5 1 countries and convince them of a deal I am a libertarian who wants peace as much as individual freedom However neither of these are possible in a world where Iran has the ability to produce nukes Join Liberty me 40 VIEWS Subscribe to my blog 6 Appreciate Give a tip Paypal Written By Bradford Thomas Published On Libertoonian Make Cartoons Not Government Next Up Join The Discussion No Comments Thoughts Comments Please join Liberty me to post a comment Articles Browse All Articles With Winds Like These Who Needs Cyclones Somehow I don t really recall how but I m promiscuous like that I ended up on Erick Erickson s mailing list I us Read more by Thomas L Knapp Vote 1 Rick Rule A

    the error of our ways They just awarded the University of Tulsa a 15 000 grant to monitor water usage which will assist hotel guests in modifying their behavior I don t know about you but I don t need some bullshit government agency telling me that I can t take a long shower Here s an excerpt from the grant for Developing a Wireless Device for Monitoring Water Usage for Hotel Showers Hotels consume a significant amount of water in the U S and around the world Most hotels do not monitor individual guest water usage and as a result millions of gallons of potable water are wasted every year by hotel guests The proposed work aims to develop a novel low cost wireless device for monitoring water use from hotel guest room showers Join Liberty me 86 VIEWS Subscribe to my blog 4 Appreciate Give a tip Paypal Written By Bradford Thomas Published On Libertoonian Make Cartoons Not Government Next Up Join The Discussion 2 Comments Leanne Baker March 22 2015 11 50 pm Log in to Reply Vote 0 Most hotels already have those annoying notices about saving water by refusing housekeeping hanging up towels blah blah One more behavior to wag their finger at us Roger Browne March 23 2015 10 16 am Log in to Reply Vote 0 I m fine with those annoying notices because I don t need a new towel every day and it keeps the costs down if I don t get one But when the hotel fits a device to restrict the water flow in my shower they will pay the price when I post my rating online Thoughts Comments Please join Liberty me to post a comment Articles Browse All Articles Prohibition and the Birth of NASCAR On January

  • Coming Home to Roost (3.12.15) - Bradford Thomas - Liberty.me
    no one has the right to even question their motives If there were a Mount Rushmore for these politicians there is no doubt in my mind that both Bill and Hillary Clinton would be flanking Dick Nixon Set aside the steamer trunks full of past baggage and focus on email insky I ve recently taken to adding insky to the Clinton scandals instead of the traditional gate Hillary did NOT set up a private email server so that she wouldn t have to carry two mobile phones It wasn t because Bill already had one in the basement and was pounding away at his Blackberry all the time He has supposedly only sent two emails in his entire life The only reason that Hillary would possibly set up a private email server is to ensure that she has total control over her legacy at the State Department No skeletons here only me rising to the challenge of the 3 00 am wake up call Even if there were no laws broken here a big murky IF this stinks to high heavens It s unfathomable that she never never ever sent or received a classified email on her only email address over her entire 4 years as Madame Secretary Given her prior stonewalling i e Travel insky Whitewater insky does she think really expect us to believe that she would voluntarily turn over emails that paint her in an unfavorable or even criminal light And why aren t the environmentalists pissed that Hillary s people printed out 55 000 pages of emails instead of handing them over electronically Join Liberty me 63 VIEWS Subscribe to my blog 10 Appreciate Give a tip Paypal Written By Bradford Thomas Published On Libertoonian Make Cartoons Not Government Next Up Join The Discussion No Comments

  • Krugmanipulation! (3.4.15) - Bradford Thomas - Liberty.me
    not by trade It should be possible to emphasize to students that the level of employment is a macroeconomic issue depending in the short run on aggregate demand and depending in the long run on the natural rate of unemployment with microeconomic policies like tariffs having little net effect Trade policy should be debated in terms of its impact on efficiency not in terms of phoney numbers about jobs created or lost Paul Krugman What do undergrads need to know about trade American Economic Review Vol 83 No 2 pp 23 26 1993 Rick Kelo March 6 2015 9 49 am Log in to Reply Buying from countries with sweatshops is not exploitation of foreign workers It s particularly important to understand that buying a shirt made by someone who makes only 30 cents an hour doesn t necessarily imply that you re taking advantage of that person It depends on the alternatives Because workers in poor countries have low productivity across the board they are offered low wages whether they produce goods exported to America or goods sold in local markets A job that looks terrible by rich country standards can be a step up for someone in a poor country And international trade that depends on low wage exports can nonetheless raise a country s standard of living Bangladesh in particular would be much poorer than it is possibly its citizens would even be starving if it weren t able to export clothing based on its low wages Paul Krugman Economics 2nd edition p 201 Rick Kelo March 6 2015 9 50 am Log in to Reply Krugman espousing in his textbooks the Laffer Curve he routinely mocks in his NY Times column the relationship between the level of the tax and the amount of revenue collected may not even be positive in some cases raising the tax rate actually reduces the amount of revenue the government collects Paul Krugman Essentials of Economics p 154 Rick Kelo March 6 2015 9 51 am Log in to Reply Extended unemployment benefits unions cause unemployment Generous unemployment benefits can increase both structural and frictional unemployment Paul Krugman Essentials of Economics p 345 Economists think that persistently high European unemployment rates are the result of government policies such as high minimum wages and generous unemployment benefits which both discourage employers from offering jobs and discourage workers from accepting jobs leading to high rates of structural unemployment Paul Krugman Essentials of Economics p 343 Rick Kelo March 6 2015 9 51 am Log in to Reply As you might notice a trend I ve chosen quotes that show Krugman s hypocrisy In the writings where he s accountable to the economics profession he sings a 180 degree different song from the positions he takes on his blog posts Bradford Thomas March 6 2015 10 38 am Log in to Reply These are awesome Rick Sounds like we need to put NYT media star Krugman in a room with Economics textbook writing Krugman
